I was way behind the eight ball on the March "my favorite block" swap at the scrappyandhappy yahoo group. I should have mailed these blocks out the 7th of April... and they didn't go out until the 22. This block is called "Checkerpins". It's from Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache . If you haven't visited this site which is chock full of free quilt block patterns.... You are really missing a treat!
The theme for the month was bright, spring like prints, with white backgrounds. We make two blocks from one of our favorite block patterns .... and then there is a draw for two lucky winners. We do this swap every other month. I really need to get started on the one for the next draw... it's theme is batiks.
I also have the row robin to work on.... it's not due to be mailed until the 6th of May.
I'd like to think that I'll get caught up before my summer break starts... but that is not a guarantee.... but I'm sure I'd make better headway if I log off this computer... LOL
